Adenium questions

Post  Russell Coker on Fri Aug 12, 2011 2:47 pm

Okay, don't laugh, but yesterday I picked up an Adenium that looks like it may have some potential. It has a single trunk with soft movement and good branches. Best part is that it doesn't look like a potato with a branch sticking out of it.

The branches come off the trunk at a pretty severe angle, but I think I can ease them down and out a little. They are about 12 inches long and covered with leaves from top to bottom. I'm afraid that where ever I cut that branch is where the new buds will break, but probably not any farther back. Any thoughts?

I don't really care if it's bonsai, or just bonsai-ish. I like some of the ones shown here from SE Asia. Does anyone know the tricks of working with these things????

I don't know since I am new. But I bought one a while back and put it next to a Mandevilla vine I bought that started blooming red tubular flowers and was wondering when the Adenium would bloom. Well, I moved the Adenium last week and half the red flowers turned out to belong to it! I was really happy, but it also had roots growing out the bottom of the pot into the dirt and those broke when I moved it. I guess that is okay. The Adenium looks something like an ancient fertility god amulet of a woman with large hips and thighs but without breasts. Nothing looks like it I guess.... Razz

The large caudex on Adenium is usually found on plants grown from seed, while plants grown from cuttings are slower to develop a caudex.
